BK Wines Carte Blanche 2020
How enticing is this description of Carte Blanche from the BK team -
“This is a winemaker’s wine, an alchemical aromatic experience of sandalwood, Frankincense and lemon drops”
BK wines are usually expressions of single vineyards, but their Carte Blanche is a decadent blend of different vineyards and varieties. Chardonnay, Gruner Veltliner, Pinot Gris and Savagnin are given contact with a high proportion of lees. The result lives up to their description. It’s texturally rich but chalky, and very generous in flavour.
Brendon and Kirstyn Keys have a minimalist approach to their winemaking. They focus on producing wines from single vineyards, and are very much at the centre of avante-garde winegrowing in the Adelaide Hills. The wines are soulful, characterful and playful.
